    To retain your honour for your family, the other people in your community that you have been shamed in front of must need to know you have killed your child otherwise why bother with the act. This speaks volumes about the community.

    If you and your extended family/community had gone to great lengths to plan your daughters future and the health of your family line wouldn't you likewise be pretty pissed if she suddenly decided to take up with some herbert she met at the local disco? It would show a clear disrespect for the heritage of your family and the reputation of them within the community. It would demonstrate an extreme short sighted level of instant gratification and above all portray a lack of self respect within the individual themselves. Why can't gora just stick his nose out and let our people be; who gives a **** about the welfare of sluts?
    Are you being ironic?

    If the family feels hurt or angry or whatever they can disown the child and hold on to their 'honour'.

    Why murder?

    Because for some reason in this crazy country of ours, murdering people is against the law.

    That's a clear disrespect for the people of this country. If you can't accept that then feel free to leave.

    It's a well recognised phenomena. When one partner dies, often the other will die shortly after because they just can't stand to be separated.

    its real. there are many stories like this. also stories of mothers who lose their babies during childbirth or shortly after and they die of heart break as they cannot take it.
    But the cause of death can't be listed as a broken heart, because that's like emotional pain no?

    The laws are there to protect everyone. You can't have self regulating communities applying their own legal systems.
